Carol Lacey “Armed Guard” Original Painting
Design Plus Gallery presents “Armed Guard” an original painting by Carol Lacey. A Painting with acrylics that captures the full beauty of the wildlife genre in a photorealism genre of painting. The vignette is of the elephant harem in full protection mode. Linen mat with metallic finished wood frame.
“Over the years Lacey has also studied the masters – Rembrandt, Monet, Cassett, Whistler, Wyeth among her favorites – and today’s outstanding wildlife artists such as Robert Bateman and Bob Kuhn. She believes she has learned something valuable from each school of thought. Her goal with each painting is to incorporate all the principles and elements she’s learned, including effects of light and atmosphere, form, depth, color, balance, perspective, design, composition, etc., into a balanced whole. “Even with all these qualities present,” explains Carol, “a successful painting must go beyond the surface to express a depth of character that touches a universal chord somewhere in all of us…spirit, if you will.”
